LOS ANGELES (February 5, 2024)–. Wise Owl Boxing has signed super middleweight Isaiah Carr to a managerial contract.
Carr, 25 years old from Kannapolis, North Carolina, was a decorated amateur and will now turn his attention to becoming a world champion in the pro ranks.
“I am really looking forward to seeing how Isaiah develops as a professional fighter. He’s extremely intelligent, and this should set him apart from the competition. He’s at the perfect age to fast-track him to the top, and that’s what we intend to do. He’ll be making his pro debut in Greensboro, North Carolina, on March 23rd,” said Mark Habibi of Wise Owl Boxing.
“I feel like it’s a blessing to have a manager like (Wise Owl Boxing’s) Mark Habibi take an interest in my career after just having 31 am fights. I have worked hard to get to where I am at. I was a hidden gem for a long time. I know the opportunities will come towards me. Him and (co-manager) Lamont Roseborough want to take me on and it is great to have someone have interest in me in taking me to the top”
“I’m excited to work with Isaiah Carr. He is a young man that’s very dedicated to the sport of boxing. He is very humble, and has a very strong work ethic that knows what he wants out of boxing. The future is very bright for not only for Isaiah, but for Wise Owl Boxing as a whole,” said Roseborough
Carr began boxing at the age of 16 when a gym opened up in his hometown.
That spawned a short but extremely productive and decorated amateur career.
In just 31 fights, Carr won the national Olympic Qualifier tournament, The Washington State Golden Gloves and then was a four-time North Carolina champion. Carr made it to Team USA and competed in the 2023 Olympic Trials.
Nicknamed “2 Hard”, Carr will compete at 168 pounds with the goal of campaigning at middleweight.
Outside the ring, Carr is an entrepreneur and owns a wholesaling real estate business.
